    Hi all,

    Just joined this site and wanted to introduce myself. I have been riding for near on 50 years and have had numerous bikes. I did a 3000 mile tour of Europe on my Rocket Touring last year but found it is just a bit too cumbersome and hot especially when we got into the towns. I have now decided that I need another machine and after much searching and test rides I have decided that the CT is the one for me. I pick it up on Friday. So let the good times roll.

     :400: Well at least you have got for a lighter option, did you go for the manual or DCT?

    Thanks for the welcome guys, Gadget, I went for the manual. I know lots of people say that DCT is great but I don't feel I am ready for it just yet. Possibly in 4 -5 years I might consider it. I have been testing lots of bikes and was set on getting a new Triumph Exp but I got bored with all the hype and the fact that triumph would not say that the new XRT model existed or not. Now that they have got them out on display they are refusing to let people know what they are going to cost. Rumour from the show is that the XRT will be around the £15800 mark and I am not spending that kind of money. I want a machine that I can ride over long distance and be able to rely on it, that is the reason I opted for the CT and of course the Honda build quality. My findings during the test rides was that there was not a lot to separate the CT from the 15Y model Exp so with the deals that are on just now with the CT I finally took the plunge. I just need to start planning my next Euro trip now. :152:
